What We Do


Staff at Conforti Institute take great pride in their aim of “making the world one family”. Our professional development opportunities offered through the Global Learning Programme Scotland offers the following;

  • advice on embedding global learning into your curriculum
  • practical, active and participatory methodologies which enhance learning
  • opportunities for teachers to reflect on how global education can enhance learning and teaching in the classroom

Since the start of GLPS we have worked with hundreds of teachers and schools within North and South Lanarkshire developing their skills in global learning. We have assisted schools in supporting their vision of embedding learning for sustainability within every classroom.
